  1. Why is he posted as Eliezer Lipa Schmeltzer if everyone just knows him as Lipa? Perhaps so poeple shouldn’t realize that Lipa sung at such a chashuva wedding?!

  2. Why does it seem that most of the crowd are Ashkenaz/Litvish? Aren’t they Sefarade?
    Also how much was Lipa paid to sing at the wedding?
